July 29, 1947. 

Hon. Ludwig D. Schreiber, 
City Clerk, 
Chicago, Illinois. 

Dear Sir — I. Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor of the

the City Council of said City of Chicago to be held

Mayor. 



Resolution Adopted on Death of Alderman 
James F. Kovarik. 

Alderman Duffy presented the following proposed 
resolution : 

Whereas, the City Council has learned with in- 
finite sorrow of the death of our beloved colleague, 
James F. Kovarik, Alderman of the Fifteenth 
Ward; and 

Whereas, his passing from our midst deprives 
the City of Chicago and the City Council of the 
valued services of a true and loyal servant, whose 
distinguished labors have helped make Chicago a 
better city; and 

Whereas, the career of James Kovarik has long 
been a source of inspiration to all who were privi- 
leged to know him, as well as those who saw in it 
a fulfillment of the best traditions of American 
democracy, he having started work as a boy in the 
stockyards with only a grade school education, 
having then worked variously as machinist, ce- 
ment finisher, foreman for a paving company, 
lumber salesman and business executive; and 

Whereas, after achieving success in the busi- 
ness world, James F. Kovarik entered the field of 
public service, being first elected alderman of the old 
- 29th Ward in 1919 and serving until 1923, then 
serving as assistant chief clerk of the Board of 
Election Commissioners from 1923 to 1931 with 
notable zeal, wisdom and devotion to duty, and 
finally winning a seat in the City Council from the 
Fifteenth Ward in 1931, a position he occupied with 
honor and credit to the City Council and the people 
of Chicago, particularly as chairman of the Com- 
mittee on Railway Terminals; and 

Whereas, the passing of James Kovarik from 
this earthly scene inflicts a deep loss upon the 
many friends and followers, who looked to him for 
leadership, counsel and friendly aid, as well as to

the members of his devoted family- his widow, 
three daughters, five sons and twelve grand- 
daughters; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the death 
of Alderman James F. Kovarik be proclaimed as an 
occasion for civic mourning, and that a copy of 
this resolution, suitably engrossed, be presented to 
the bereaved widow of James F. Kovarik as a 
token of the affection and high esteem in which he 
was held in life by his colleagues and fellow Chi- 
cagoans. 

Alderman Duffy moved to adopt the proposed reso- 
lution and addressed the Council in tribute to his 
deceased colleague. Seconding addresses were made 
by Aldermen Bohling, Olin, Egan, Wagner, Janousek, 
Howler, Rostenkowski, Orlikoski, Lancaster and 
Brody. 

All the speakers, together with Honorable Martin 
II. Kennelly, Mayor, stressed the fairness and honesty 
of their departed colleague and the diligence with 
which he performed his aldermanic duties. They ex- 
pressed the feeling that Alderman Kovarik's health 
began to fail definitely after the death of his son in 
World War II. The sentiment was expressed that 
when the problem of consolidating railroad terminals 
is finally solved, a suitable marker should be installed 
in the new terminal in memory of Alderman Kovarik, 



who had given much time and thought in a constant 
effort to make the proposed consolidation a reality. 

At the suggestion of the Chair the privilege of the 
floor was extended to former Alderman Thomas J. 
Bowler, who joined in the tribute to the late Alder- 
man Kovarik, who he said had been his earliest ad- 
viser and friend when he first became a member of 
the City Council in 1923. 

All the speakers expressed sympathy to the be- 
reaved family. 

The question thereupon being put, the proposed 
resolution was adopted unanimously, by a rising vote. 
The Mayor and the aldermen remained standing for a 
few moments, in silent tribute. 

Alderman Duffy thereupon moved that all the mem- 
bers of the City Council attend the funeral in a body. 
Seconded by Alderman O'Hallaren. 

The motion prevailed. 



ADJOURNMENT. 

Alderman Duffy thereupon moved that the City 
Council do adjourn. 

The motion prevailed, and the Council stood ad- 
journed.

Proclamation 

Whereas, the President of the United States has

Hon. William J. Lancaster, Chairman,

City Council, 
City of Chicago. 

Dear Alderman: 

The undersigned members of the Committee on 
Committees and Rules hereby direct the Chairman 
of said Committee to make the following report 
at the meeting of the City Council to be held on 
August 18, 1947: 

The Committee on Committees and Rules has 
made every effort to present a plan for redis- 
tricting the City of Chicago to the City Council 
at this meeting. The Committee had previously 
informed the members of the City Council that 
no plan would be proposed by the Committee 
until every member of the City Council would 
be consulted. The Committee has spent consid- 
erable time consulting with numerous aldermen 
as to proposed new ward boundaries. In a num- 
ber of instances, the aldermen have agreed with 
the proposals of the Committee; in other in- 
stances, the aldermen have suggested changes in 
the proposed boundaries; and other aldermen 
have requested further time to consider the pro- 
posed boundary lines. Some aldermen have been 
unable to appear before the Committee. 

It is the unanimous opinion of the Committee 
that the Committee should devote further time 
for consultation with the members of the City 
Council.

COMMUNICATIONS, ETC. - 811 



September 10, 1947 

This release was ordered as the result of a re- 
port made to me by the Committee on Defense of 
Prisoners of the Chicago Bar Association, who ad- 
vised me that there was no evidence that Mr. Yoos 
was guilty of any disorderly conduct and that be- 
cause of his limited education and mental faculties, 
he was unable to conduct a defense of the charge 
made against him. 

Dr. D. B. Rotman, Director of The Psychiatric 
Institute, examined Mr. Yoos and found him to be 
mentally ill and he was accordingly committed to 
the Manteno State Hospital with the knowledge and 
consent of his brother. 

A copy of the letter signed by the Chairman and 
Vice Chairman of the Committee on Defense of 
Prisoners of the Chicago Bar Association is at- 
tached to and made a part of this communication.

1947, a memorandum of agreement was entered 
into by the City of Chicaeo, the County of Cook, 
and the Department of Public Works and Buildings 
for the construction of the Northwest Route of the 
Comprehensive Superhighway System inside the 
city limits of Chicago. Similar agreements for that 
portion of the Northwest Route in the County 
outside the city limits of Chicago- and also the 
Wacker Drive Extension (feeder to Congress 
Street) are in the course of preparation. 

The Eightieth Congress of the United States 
passed on Act, approved by the President July 1, 
1947, which enables the State of Illinois to use the 
lands now occupied by the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal for highway, park, recreational or any other 
public purposes. 

In line with this Act of Congress, the Sixty-fifth 
General Assembly of the State of Illinois passed 
House Bill 986, which accents the terms, conditions 
and obligations of the Federal Act and provides 
that such Act shall become a law in the State of 
Illinois in the same form in which it was intro- 
duced in the House of Representatives of the Con- 
gress of the United States. The General Assembly 
also passed House Bill 984, which adds Section 7 
to 'An Act in relation to the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal and the canal lands, the protection, preserva- 
tion and disposition thereof, and to repeal all Acts 
and parts of Acts in conflict herewith," approved 
June 17, 1919, as amended, and House Bill 985, 
which adds Section 29 to "An Act to revise the 
law in relation to the Illinois and Michigan Canal, 
and for the improvement of the Illinois and Little 
Wabash Rivers," approved March 27, 1874, as 
amended. These added sections are identical and 
provide that nothing contained in the Acts which 
they amend shall preclude the Department of 
Public Works and Buildings, or the County of Cook 
with the permission of the Department, from build- 
ing and maintaining a road in the County of Cook 
upon the bed of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, 
the 90-foot adjacent strips, or any appurtenances 
thereof, and setting forth the conditions under 
which such road may be constructed. I approved all 
three of these Acts of the Legislature on July 21, 
1947. 

While the State recognizes the importance of the 
construction of the West and Northwest Routes of 
the Comprehensive Superhighway System, for 
which agreements have been entered into or are in 
the process of being entered into, it also recognizes 
the importance of starting construction of t>>e Illi- 
nois and Michigan Canal Route within Cook County 
as soon as possible.

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



September 10, 1947 



Inasmuch as legislation has been enacted, both 
by the Congress of the United States and the Legis- 
lature of the State of Illinois which will permit 
construction of the Illinois and Michigan Canal 
Route to be started, the State is ready and willing 
to enter into agreement with the City of Chicago 
and the County of Cook for the construction of 
that nortion of this route beginning at a point on 
the South Route near 24th Street in the City of 
Chicago and extending westerly and southwesterly 
to the intersection of the Illinois and Michigan 
Canal and Lawndale Avenue and thence extending 
northwesterly to a connection with Route U. S. 66 
in McCook, such agreements to be on the same 
basis as those which have abready been executed 
for the West and Northwest Routes; that is, equal 
participation by the State, the County, and the 
City in the cost of right of way and the cost of 
construction inside of the C'ty and ennal partici- 
pation by the State and the County in that portion 
outside of the city limits. 

If this proposal of joint participation is agree- 
able to you, I will instruct the Division of High- 
ways to arrange conferences with the County and 
the City highway officials to discuss the details of 
the agreement, so that early completion of this 
portion of the Canal Route will be assured. 

Yours sincerely, 

(Signed) Dwight H. Hr-en, 

Governor.

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

August 20, 1947. 

The Honorable Dwight H. Green, 
Governor. State of Illinois, 
Springfield, Illinois. 

My Dear Governor Green : 

Thin will acknowledge your recent letter in which 
you advised that the State of Illinois is ready and 
willing to enter into a jo'nt agreement with the 
City of Chicago and County of Cook, for the con- 
struction of the Southwest Sunerhighway along the 
route of the Illinois and Michigan Canal, from a 
connection with the proposed South Superhighway 
near 24th Street to a connection with Route 66 
near McCook. 

Although it is not a part of the official Greater 
Chicago Program, I agree with you that construc- 
tion of the proposed Southwest Superhighway is 
desirable, and I will request Mr. Virgil E. Gunlock, 
Commissioner of Subways and Superhighways, to 
work out terms of a joint agreement with repre- 
sentatives of the State Division Highways. 

I should like to point out, however, that the City 
of Chicago already has definite commitments for 
construction of the West and Northwest Super- 
highway routes. Joint agreements also are pending 
for construction of the proposed Wacker Drive ex- 
tension and the proposed South Superhighway. 

I mention this because, as you know, Chicago's 
urgent need for major highway improvements 
greatly exceeds highway funds available for this 
purpose, and the placing of the Southwest Super- 
highway in the construction program will, of 
course, be a question for the City Council to decide, 
with due consideration to the maximum of traffic 
relief for Chicago and the Metropolitan area. 

Sincerely, 

Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor. 



Proposals for Issuance of Rehousing Bonds and 
Slum Clearance Bonds in Amounts of 
$15,000,000.00 Each— Referred. 

Honorable Martin H. Kennelly, Mayor, submitted 
the following communication, transmitting two pro- 
posed ordinances to authorize bond issues which were 
Referred to a Special Committee composed jointly of 
the members of the Committee on Finance and the 
members of the Committee on Housing: 

City of Chicago 
Office of the Mayor 

September 10, 1947. 

The Honorable, the Members of the City Council of 
the City of Chicago: 

Gentlemen- — I herewith transmit for your con- 
sideration two ordinances which will make it pos- 
sible to submit for referendum vote of the people 
at the November 4, 1947 election, bond issues in 
the amount of $30,000,000 for slum clearance and 
low rent housing in Chicago. Of this amount, 
$15,000,000 is to be used for land clearance and 
the remaining $15,000,000 for low rent housing. 

It is unnecessary to stress the urgency of prompt 
action in this matter. These ordinances are essen- 
tial, both in order to make possible an early start 
on Chicago's housing program as outlined and re- 
ported to you by the Committee on Housing Action, 
and in order to obtain Chicago's share of State 
funds made available for these purposes. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Martin H. Kennelly, 

Mayor.

Validity of City's Ordinance to Control Rents of Hotel 
Housing Accommodations. 

Also the following communication, which was, to- 
gether with the copy of the opinion transmitted there- 
with, Referred to the Committee on Housing: 

City of Chicago 
Department of Law 

September 9, 1947. 

In re: Ambassador East, Inc., etc., et al., v. City of 
Chicago, etc., et al., Circuit Court No. 47 C 10371. 

To the Honorable, the City Council of the City of 
Chicago: 

Gentlemen— We are pleased to inform you that 
Honorable Leonard C. Reid, judge of the Circuit 
court of Cook County, today denied the application 
of the plaintiffs for an injunction pendente lite to 
restrain the enforcement of the ordinance enacted 
July 25, 1947, entitled "an ordinance to control 
rents of hotel housing accommodations". 

The court sustained our contention that the ordi- 
nance was a proper exercise of the power delegated 
to the city by the Community Emergency Housing 
Rent Control law, approved July 18, 1947. The 
plaintiffs had contended that the statute by its 
terms excluded from its operation hotels. We 
argued in the briefs which we filed that the term 
"hotel" has a well recognized common law meaning 
as a place of accommodation for transients. The 
court adopted our view and held that the legisla- 
ture intended that the city should have power to 
regulate and control rentals of housing accommo- 
dations other than those provided for transient 
guests. 

A copy of the opinion of Judge Reid is attached 
hereto. 

Yours very truly, 

(Signed) L. Louis Karton, 
Head of the Appeals and Review Division, 
Assistant Corporation Counsel. 

Approved : 

(Signed) Benjamin S. Adamowski, 

Corporation Counsel. 

Alderman Geisler moved that the Corporation 
Counsel be commended for the skill and diligence 
displayed in the City's defense of its authority in the 
matter of rent control and hotel housing accommoda- 
tions. 

The motion prevailed. 



Plat of Resubdivision. 

Also a communication from Hadnor Construction 
Company, transmitting a proposed order to direct the 
Superintendent of Maps to approve a plat of resub- 
division of the territory bounded by W. 104th Street,

mittee on Local Industries, Streets and Alleys.

ber 2nd. 

Your subcommittee is advised that approximately 
430 motor truck drivers did not work on Septem-

proximately 900 loads of refuse and 300 loads of 
other materials.

by the Labor Day holiday on September 1st, and 
that work may be carried on on Saturday, Sep- 
tember 13th, to take up the loss on account of the 
work stoppage on September 2nd. 

In meetings of September 2nd and September

and the necessary steps required to avoid a pos- 
sible recurrence of such a work stoppage in the 
future. The conclusions of the subcommittee are

JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



September 10, 1947 



Chicago-Cook County Health Survey submits this 
report outlining the steps to carry out certain speci- 
fied recommendations of the Chicago-Cook County 
Health Survey. 

The absolute need for forceful and aggressive ac- 
tion by the City in the field of public health has 
become more and more apparent through the years. 
Of particular importance is the need to advance the 
City's role in the prevention of disease, through 
the establishment of the most modern public health 
procedures. Chicago has been fortunate in being 
the first large city in the world to have a complete 
survey of its present health facilities conducted by 
competent technicians from Chicago, Cook County, 
and the Federal government. This survey, which 
was originally brought about as a result of citizen 
interest, and through a formal request by the Hon. 
Edward J. Kelly, at that time the Mayor of Chi- 
cago, and Clayton F. Smith, then President of the 
Cook County Board of Commissioners, was con- 
ducted not in a spirit of criticism of existing health 
activities, but rather with the idea of obtaining the 
best possible health services for the entire metro- 
politan region. Admittedly, Chicago's Department 
of Health has been a leader in many phases of 
health work for some years. 

The scope of the Chicago-Cook County Health 
Survey is broad. The funds which would need be 
expended to bring to Chicago the optimum in health 
services would be considerable. Recognizing these 
facts, it is our recommendation that a long-term 
program of improvement be instituted, and that as 
a beginning the following steps be taken: 

1. Establishment of an Advisory Committee 
to the Board of Health of at Least Seven Mem- 
bers, to be Appointed by the Mayor with Con- 
currence of the City Council, to Make Recom- 
mendations on Matters of Broad Health Policy. 

It is suggested that this committee be appointed 
by the Mayor from among a list of representatives 
submitted by the Chicago Medical Association, 
Council of Social Agencies, and other representa- 
tive, interested groups, including those subject to 
control and inspection by the Board of Health. The 
Advisory Committee would meet from time to time 
to assess the over-all health program of the city, 
and to evaluate the effectiveness of this program. 
It should be composed of the best available citizens, 
both lay and professional, who would through their 
keen interest and special talents provide a continu- 
ing review of Chicago's health activities. This 
technique has proven particularly effective in the 
United States Public Health Service where advisory 
groups meet several times a year to evaluate the 
health activities of the Federal government, and to 
advise with both the Surgeon General and the 
President of the United States. 

2. Recommendation That the City Council 
Petition the Next State Legislature for a Re- 
vision of the "Cities and Villages" Act to Allow 
Cities Over 500,000 Population to Establish a 
Commissioner of Health to Carry Out the Func- 
tions of the Department. 

The present Board of Health must act on all the 
complicated administrative details necessary to the 
effective operation of the Department of Health. 
Actually, of course, the President of the Board of 
Health must, through his daily work, take the 
leadership of this Board. However, he does not 
have the complete responsibility which should be 
his. If the State law is revised, then the Commis- 
sioner of Health should be appointed by the Mayor 
(with concurrence of the City Council) and be re- 



sponsible to him for the administration of the De- 
partment's activities. The Advisory Committee 
would continue as recommended above. 

3. More Effective Cooperation Between the 
Department of Health and the Municipal 
Tuberculosis Sanitarium, to Bring Together the 
Policies of the Two Groups. 

Only through the vast services of the Depart- 
ment of Health can the full benefit of a preventa- 
tive TB program be achieved. This cooperation 
could save the city a substantial amount of money, 
especially by consolidation of the visiting nursing 
activities now conducted separately by the MTS 
and the Board of Health. At the present time, the 
MTS nurses visit homes only for tuberculosis care, 
while the Board of Health nurses visit for child 
care. All competent authorities are agreed that 
these functions could be carried out by the same 
nurses. Certainly, in the interest of efficiency and 
economy, the City of Chicago should take the neces- 
sary steps to see that the closest possible coordina- 
tion exists between the MTS and the Board of 
Health. To this end his honor, the Mayor, has 
asked Dr. Herman Bundesen to accept membership 
on the MTS Board. 

4. Revision of the "Cities and Villages" Act 
to Provide for Actual Consolidation of the 
Municipal Tuberculosis Sanitarium and the De- 
partment of Health. 

It is recommended that the Committee on Con- 
solidation make further studies in this regard. 

5. Additional of Certain New Functions to 
the Department of Health to Bring to the City 
the Most Complete Health Services Possible. 

Because of the difficulty in obtaining properly 
qualified personnel, and because of budgetary limi- 
tations, it is proposed that a beginning be made in 
1948, and that further additions be planned over at 
least a four-year period, as personnel and money 
become available. In some cases Federal funds are 
available for these vital health functions, and, if 
made available through the state, may cover the 
initial cost of the departmental services. The num- 
ber of employees and estimated salaries are based 
on preliminary estimates made by the United States 
Public Health Service, and representatives of the 
Department of Health. The estimates are to serve 
as a guide only, and do not represent the final 
budgetary requests. 

(a) District Health Center Unit — As part of 
the general decentralization of govern- 
mental activities of bringing health facili- 
ties closer to the people, it is recommended 
that 20 district health centers be estab- 
lished. For 1948, we proposed one pilot 
center. The salaries for three people for 
this development would be approximately 
$12,000. If the center is not located in ex- 
isting public facilities, additional funds 
will be required for the physical space and 
equipment. 

(b) Bureau of Geriatrics (including Cancer 
Control and Adult Hygiene) — With dis- 
eases of old age taking an increasing toll 
of lives, such a bureau is an absolute neces- 
sity, and a beginning should immediately 
be made to insure Chicago's full participa- 
tion in the nation-wide drive against can- 
cer and heart diseases. Federal funds for 
cancer control should be available once 
this activity is organized. Estimated total 
cost for a staff of eight people would be 
approximately $43,000.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES

(c) Division of Health Education and Informa- 
tion — A necessary unit to serve all other 
divisions in the department, and which 
will carry to the public needed informa- 
tion on various health problems, especially 
cancer, heart disease, nutrition, and men- 
tal hygiene. Only by expansion of present 
facilities can full benefits be had by all the 
public of Chicago's health services. For a 
staff of ten, total salary cost would be 
about $30,000. 

(d) Division of Nutrition — Diet has come to 
the forefront with front-page stories of 
the daily calory allowances in the various 
European countries. Surely all Chicagoans 
are now aware of the great importance of 
balanced eating habits. For a staff of 
seven, total salary cost would be about 
$25,000. 

(e) Bureau of School Health Services — At the 
present time Chicago's schools are almost 
completely lacking in a systematized in- 
ventory and inspectional medical and nurs- 
ing program. To have a complete periodic 
checkup of the children and a full-fledged 
school health program would eventually 
entail the expenditure of an estimated one 
million dollars. We recommend future 
study of this entire subject by the City 
Council, the Board of Health, and the 
Board of Education. 

(f ) Division of Mental Hygiene — With the city 
increasingly alarmed about persons with 
mental disorders, a division of men- 
tal hygiene would appear to be an imme- 
diate necessity. A staff of eleven, costing 
about $45,000 in salaries, could initiate 
such a program. Federal funds should be 
available on application to cover much if 
not all of this cost. 

(g) Emergency Service Planning — Develop- 
ment of disaster plans for local catastro- 
phes affecting health, would not be out of 
place in this chaotic world. Experience in 
both war and peace has demonstrated the 
absolute need for advance planning to han- 
dle the medical and public health aspects 
of such disasters, and to coordinate them 
with plans of other departments. A sec- 
tion in the Health Commissioner's office 
would entail the expenditure of an esti- 
mated $10,000 for three persons. This ap- 
propriation should be subject to further 
review. 

With these new and expanded functions, Chi- 
cago's health services would be second to none in 
the world. While our Department is rated highly 
now, the best is none too good. Total initial cost 
for these added functions would amount to an 
estimated $165,000, (exclusive of the Bureau of 
School Health Services) much of which could be 
borne by Federal assistance, through the State. 
We wish to again stress that this assistance is 
only forthcoming when the City of Chicago has 
demonstrated its intention of going ahead with 
these programs. 

If these additional essential services are author- 
ized, the Department of Health should consider 
internal reorganization, as suggested by the Health 
Survey. This, however, is a matter for the Depart- 
ment — not the City Council. Adequate selection of 
qualified personnel is of concern to the Council, and 
further studies should be made in this regard. 

The above are a first step in a second-to-none 
health program for Chicago. Adoption of these 



measures will put us well on that road. Your close 
consideratiton is urgently requested.

(Signed) Louis London, 

24th Ward. 

(Signed) Wm. H. Harvey, 

2nd Ward. 
Alderman Frank Ringa approved the 
general principles of the report but 
objected to any reference to the num- 
ber of employees or amount of money 
recommended in the various sections 
of the 5th recommendation. 

Whereas, Chicago is the first large city in the 
United States which has secured a complete survey 
of its health protective facilities by competent 
local and national government technicians; and 

Whereas, It is deemed advisable for the purpose 
of keeping in the lead in matters of broad health 
policy to have the advantage of expert and prac- 
tical advice to provide a continuing review of Chi- 
cago's health protective activities; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, That the Mayor, 
with the concurrence of the City Council shall 
appoint and advisory committee to the board of 
health, of at least seven members, both lay and 
professional, to meet from time to time for the 
purpose of assessing the over-all health program 
for the city, evaluating its effectiveness and making 
such recommendations to the board of health as it 
deems advisable.

The following is the memorandum attached to the

Memo 

To: Alderman Joseph S. Gillespie, 

. Chairman, City Council Committee on Health. 
From : Dr. Herman N. Bundesen, 

President, Board of Health. 
Re : Time limit of sale of milk. 

At the meeting of the City Council Committee on 
Health, held on July 15, 1947, it was requested that 
I renort as to whether or not the safety of the milk 
supply would be endangered if the legal time limit 
of sale were extended an additional 24 hours. 

From a public health standpoint, the important 
item of consideration is the temperature at which 
the milk has been continuously maintained from 
the time of pasteurization until sold. 

To insure a safe milk supply, the temperature 
must be maintained continuously at or below 50 
degrees Fahrenheit. If this temperature is main- 
tained, the extension of the legal time limit of sale 
to additional 24 hours would not present a public 
health hazard.

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



851 



City of Chicago 
Public Vehicle License Commission 

July 14, 1947. 

The Honorable City Council, City of Chicago, City 
Hall, Chicago, Illinois. 

Gentlemen — Prior to the war the City of Chicago 
had 3,000 licensed taxicabs under the City Ordi- 
nance which, at that time, was an adequate number 
to give efficient service to the public. 

Because of the intensive use of taxicabs during 
the war years and the lack of labor and material, 
the cab equipment of the licensees under the Con- 
tract Ordinance deteriorated and service became 
insufficient. 

In January 1946 the Commissioner checked 
and found that 321 cabs of the major companies 
had not operated for a considerable time and were 
inoperable. Notice was given to the operators that 
these licenses were to be cancelled, thereupon the 
major companies instituted court proceedings and 
secured an injunction restraining the city from 
cancelling said licenses. 

Section 196-A-2 of the Taxicab Ordinance reads 
as follows: 

"Notwithstanding section 1 of this ordinance, 
taxicab licenses in excess of 3,000 may be issued 
when authorized by general ordinance without 
consent of licensees under the ordinance of May 
18, 1934; provided that such licensees who shall 
have voluntarily surrendered any taxicab li- 
censes or their right to renewal of any taxicab 
licenses on or before March 31, 1938, shall have 
the right to such number of taxicab licenses as 
were so surrendered, and such right shall be 
prior to the right of any person, firm or corpora- 
tion until such licensees who have so surren- 
dered their taxicab licenses shall have either 
released their right to apply for taxicab licenses 
or shall have failed to make application therefor 
within thirty days after publication of notice of 
public hearing upon the question of public con- 
venience and necessity for the issuance of li- 
censes for taxicabs as provided by ordinance. As 
between such licensees who have so surrendered 
taxicab licenses and who have not released or 
waived their right to apply for their substitution 
as herein provided such licenses shall be issued 
ratably in the proportion which the number vol- 
untarily surrendered by each such licensee bears 
to the number voluntarily surrendered by all 
other such licensees." 

Under Section 196-A-2 of the Taxicab Ordinance, 
Yellow Cab Company has the right to apply for 
571 licenses and Checker Taxi Company has the 
right to apply for 500 licenses — this being the 
number surrendered by them as of March 31, 1938. 

A conference was held between Mayor Kelly, 
the companies and the Commissioner and the com- 
panies acceded to the Mayor's request that the 
companies would withhold any court action on the 
issuance of temporary licenses to 275 veterans. 
These licenses were promptly issued and operated. 
Since that time a great number of unlicensed indi- 
viduals appeared operating on the city streets. The 
only means of this office obtaining the number of 
such unlicensed cabs was through the office of the 
Secretary of State. The following shows recent 
dates and number of unlicensed cabs operating on 
the streets in the City of Chicago: 

April 4, 1947 1,261 

May 5, 1947 1,230 

May 29, 1947 '. 1,187 

Some of these unlicensed cabs operate only a 
few hours per day or week, some others come out 



only at midnight and work until three or four 
o'clock in the morning, doing all their business 
around the night club districts. 

The City of Chicago refrained from enforcement 
of legal requirements on these unlicensed taxicabs, 
pending the outcome of a public hearing. It is 
impossible, however, in most cases to trace the 
many complaints received as to lost articles, re- 
fusal of loads, overcharges and discourtesies. 

On February 5, 1947 your Honorable Body 
passed an ordinance which reads as follows and is 
shown on page 7249 of the Council Proceedings — 

"Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago : 

Section 1. Section 28-8 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended by striking out the last 
sentence of said section and substituting the 
following : 

"Such license fees shall be in addition to motor 
vehicle taxes and in addition to compensation 
required to be paid pursuant to contract ordi- 
nances authorizing operation of public pas- 
senger vehicles upon the public ways of the 
city." 

Section 2. Chapter 28 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended by adding a new section 
to be known as Section 28-18 as follows: 

"28-18. Restrictions on license.) It is found 
and declared that the demand for taxicab 
service in the city of. Chicago is in excess of 
three thousand taxicabs authorized by an ordi- 
nance passed by the City Council on December 
22, 1937, appearing on page 5027 of the Jour- 
nal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
that date, and the Public Vehicle License Com- 
missioner is authorized to issue not to exceed 
five thousand five hundred taxicab licenses. 
No taxicab license shall be issued to any per- 
son unless he is authorized to operate taxicabs 
by acceptance of an ordinance granting per- 
mission and authority for the operation of 
taxicabs within the city subject to the condi- 
tions and limitations in such ordinance." 
Section 3. This ordinance shall be effective 
upon its passage. 

This ordinance became effective by publication 
on February 26, 1947. 

On February 10, 1947 your Honorable Body 
passed an order, shown on page 7269 of the Coun- 
cil Proceedings which reads as follows : 

"Ordered, That the Public Vehicle License Com- 
missioner be and he hereby is directed to pub- 
lish notice of and to hold a public hearing, or 
public hearings, on the question of public con- 
venience and necessity for the issuance of taxi- 
cab licenses pursuant to the terms of an ordi- 
nance passed February 5, 1947, page 7249 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings of said date." 
In pursuance of the above order, a notice was 
published in the Chicago Journal of Commerce on 
February 26, 27, 28, March 1, April 23, 24, 25, 26 
and 28, 1947. In addition to this publication a 
copy of said publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce, together with a letter notifying them 
of the meeting, was mailed to all applicants and 
in addition notice of these hearings was given to 
all present licensed cab operators. 

There were 3,621 applicant's names published 
of which 1,290 did not appear — the other 2,331 
appeared and were heard at the public hearing, as 
prescribed by law, which started March 5, 1947 
and consumed twenty-two (22) full days, ending 
on May 13, 1947. There were 3,118 pages of testi- 
mony in the public stenographer's transcript to- 
gether with a volume of exhibits introduced by

Memo 

To: Alderman Joseph S. GiUesoie, 

. Chairman, City Council Committee on Health. 
Prom : Dr. Herman N. Bundesen, 

President, Board of Health. 
Re : Time limit of sale of milk. 

At the meeting of the City Council Committee on 
Health, held on July 15, 1947, it was requested that 
I renort as to whether or not the safety of the milk 
supDly would be endangered if the legal time limit 
of sale were extended an additional 24 hours. 

Prom a public health standpoint, the important 
item of consideration is the temperature at which 
the milk has been continuously maintained from 
the time of pasteurization until sold. 

To insure a safe milk supply, the temperature 
must be maintained continuously at or below 50 
degrees Fahrenheit. If this temperature is main- 
tained, the extension of the legal time limit of sale 
to additional 24 hours would not present a public 
health hazard.

city.

Chicago is amended by striking out the last sen- 
tence of said section and substituting the follow-

REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



851 



City of Chicago 
Public Vehicle License Commission 

July 14, 1947. 

The Honorable City Council, City of Chicago, City 
Hall, Chicago, Illinois. 

Gentlemen — Prior to the war the City of Chicago 
had 3,000 licensed taxicabs under the City Ordi- 
nance which, at that time, was an adequate number 
to give efficient service to the public. 

Because of the intensive use of taxicabs during 
the war years and the lack of labor and material, 
the cab equipment of the licensees under the Con- 
tract Ordinance deteriorated and service became 
insufficient. 

In January 1946 the Commissioner checked 
and found that 321 cabs of the major companies 
had not operated for a considerable time and were 
inoperable. Notice was given to the operators that 
these licenses were to be cancelled, thereupon the 
major companies instituted court proceedings and 
secured an injunction restraining the city from 
cancelling said licenses. 

Section 196-A-2 of the Taxicab Ordinance reads 
as follows: 

"Notwithstanding section 1 of this ordinance, 
taxicab licenses in excess of 3,000 may be issued 
when authorized by general ordinance without 
consent of licensees under the ordinance of May 
18, 1934; provided that such licensees who shall 
have voluntarily surrendered any taxicab li- 
censes or their right to renewal of any taxicab 
licenses on or before March 31, 1938, shall have 
the right to such number of taxicab licenses as 
were so surrendered, and such right shall be 
prior to the right of any person, firm or corpora- 
tion until such licensees who have so surren- 
dered their taxicab licenses shall have either 
released their right to apply for taxicab licenses 
or shall have failed to make application therefor 
within thirty days after publication of notice of 
public hearing upon the question of public con- 
venience and necessity for the issuance of li- 
censes for taxicabs as provided by ordinance. As 
between such licensees who have so surrendered 
taxicab licenses and who have not released or 
waived their right to apply for their substitution 
as herein provided such licenses shall be issued 
ratably in the proportion which the number vol- 
untarily surrendered by each such licensee bears 
to the number voluntarily surrendered by all 
other such licensees." 

Under Section 196-A-2 of the Taxicab Ordinance, 
Yellow Cab Company has the right to apply for 
571 licenses and Checker Taxi Company has the 
right to apply for 500 licenses — this being the 
number surrendered by them as of March 31, 1938. 

A conference was held between Mayor Kelly, 
the companies and the Commissioner and the com- 
panies acceded to the Mayor's request that the 
companies would withhold any court action on the 
issuance of temporary licenses to 275 veterans. 
These licenses were promptly issued and operated. 
Since that time a great number of unlicensed indi- 
viduals appeared operating on the city streets. The 
only means of this office obtaining the number of 
such unlicensed cabs was through the office of the 
Secretary of State. The following shows recent 
dates and number of unlicensed cabs operating on 
the streets in the City of Chicago: 

April 4, 1947 1,261 

May 5, 1947 1,230 

May 29, 1947 1,187 

Some of these unlicensed cabs operate only a 
few hours per day or week, some others come out 



only at midnight and work until three or four 
o'clock in the morning, doing all their business 
around the night club districts. 

The City of Chicago refrained from enforcement 
of legal requirements on these unlicensed taxicabs, 
pending the outcome of a public hearing. It is 
impossible, however, in most cases to trace the 
many complaints received as to lost articles, re- 
fusal of loads, overcharges and discourtesies. 

On February 5, 1947 your Honorable Body 
passed an ordinance which reads as follows and is 
shown on page 7249 of the Council Proceedings — 

"Be It Ordained by the City Council of the City 
of Chicago: 

Section 1. Section 28-8 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended by striking out the last 
sentence of said section and substituting the 
following : 

"Such license fees shall be in addition to motor 
vehicle taxes and in addition to compensation 
required to be paid pursuant to contract ordi- 
nances authorizing operation of public pas- 
senger vehicles upon the public ways of the 
city." 

Section 2. Chapter 28 of the Municipal Code 
of Chicago is amended by adding a new section 
to be known as Section 28-18 as follows: 

"28-18. Restrictions on license.) It is found 
and declared that the demand for taxicab 
service in the city of. Chicago is in excess of 
three thousand taxicabs authorized by an ordi- 
nance passed by the City Council on December 
22, 1937, appearing on page 5027 of the Jour- 
nal of the Proceedings of the City Council of 
that date, and the Public Vehicle License Com- 
missioner is authorized to issue not to exceed 
five thousand five hundred taxicab licenses. 
No taxicab license shall be issued to any per- 
son unless he is authorized to operate taxicabs 
by acceptance of an ordinance granting per- 
mission and authority for the operation of 
taxicabs within the city subject to the condi- 
tions and limitations in such ordinance." 
Section 3. This ordinance shall be effective 
upon its passage. 

This ordinance became effective by publication 
on February 26, 1947. 

On February 10, 1947 your Honorable Body 
passed an order, shown on page 7269 of the Coun- 
cil Proceedings which reads as follows : 

"Ordered, That the Public Vehicle License Com- 
missioner be and he hereby is directed to pub- 
lish notice of and to hold a public hearing, or 
public hearings, on the question of public con- 
venience and necessity for the issuance of taxi- 
cab licenses pursuant to the terms of an ordi- 
nance passed February 5, 1947, page 7249 of the 
Journal of the Proceedings of said date." 
In pursuance of the above order, a notice was 
published in the Chicago Journal of Commerce on 
February 26, 27, 28, March 1, April 23, 24, 25, 26 
and 28, 1947. In addition to this publication a 
copy of said publication in the Chicago Journal of 
Commerce, together with a letter notifying them 
of the meeting, was mailed to all applicants and 
in addition notice of these hearings was given to 
all present licensed cab operators. 

There were 3,621 applicant's names published 
of which 1,290 did not appear — the other 2,331 
appeared and were heard at the public hearing, as 
prescribed by law, which started March 5, 1947 
and consumed twenty-two (22) full days, ending 
on May 13, 1947. There were 3,118 pages of testi- 
mony in the public stenographer's transcript to- 
gether with a volume of exhibits introduced by 



852 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



September 10, 1947 



the various attorneys and applicants — the entire 
2,331 appeared giving what testimony or evidence 
they could as to the convenience and necessity for 
more cabs. The following *were among those per- 
sons offering testimony, evidence or exhibits — 
Mr. Marvin Bas, Attorney, American Cab Asso- 
ciation 

Mr. Louis Bebee, Veteran Service Cab Associa- 
tion 

Mr. L. Cherbo, American Cab Association 
Mr. George Marcie, Chauffeurs' Union Local 777 
Mr. Matt Rottner, American Cab Association 
Mr. Benj. Samuels, Vice-President, Yellow Cab 
Company 

Mr. Robert Samuels, Attorney, Yellow Cab Com- 
pany 

Mr. Edgar Sirles, Tower Cab Company 
Mr. M. M. Sokoll, President, Checker Taxi Com- 
pany 

Mr. Arthur Dickholtz, Flash Cab Company 
Mr. Sam Davis, Old Glory Cab Company 
Mr. S. Goldsmith, Ace Cab Company 
Most of the information as to necessity for ad- 
ditional cabs was merely hearsay evidence and not 
based on accurate knowledge so your Commis- 
sioner had surveys made throughout the course 
of the public hearing. 

One survey was made on Monday, April 22; 
Tuesday, April 23 and Wednesday, April 24, 1947 
from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 'Survey was made at 
Michigan Avenue and Oak Street, Michigan Avenue 
Bridge, I. C. Station, North Western Station, Union 
Station and the loop hotels. This survey showed 
that 70.2% of all cabs passing these points were 
loaded with an average of 1.73 passengers and the 
percentage of empty cabs 29.8%. 

The last survey was made at the same points 
from Monday, May 12, 1947 to and including May 
18, 1947 from the hours of 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 
daily. This survey showed that 69,655 cabs passed 
the above mentioned points — 61.9% of all cabs 
were loaded with an average of 1.6 passengers and 
38.1% emoty. 

The Yellow Cab Company submitted in the rec- 
ord, as evidence, three traffic surveys made in 
April 1946, November and December 1946 and 
during the time that the last public hearing was 
held. A week's investigation at four strategic 
points for full days from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. 
indicated that all taxicabs in a twelve hour day 
passed these points showing a variation of from 
25% to 65% empty. 

At the present time there are 3000 permanent 
licenses, 275 temporary licenses and approxi- 
mately 1200 unlicensed cabs or a total of 4475. 

At the present time the major companies have 
in excess of 50% new cabs and their records show 
that the old cabs average .75 shifts per day 
whereas the new cabs average 1.9 shifts per day. 
Assuming that the 275 temporary licenses operate 
on the same basis and assuming further that the 
1200 unlicensed cabs operate on a basis of 50% 
(many of them operating only a few hours a day 
or week), these 4475 cabs now produce 4939 shifts 



per day as follows: 
50% of 3000 cabs at .75 shifts per 

day 1125 shifts 

50% of 3000 cabs at 1.9 shifts per 

day 2850 shifts 

50% of 275 cabs at .75 shifts per 

day 103 shifts 

50% of 275 cabs at 1.9 shifts per 

day : 261 shifts 

50% of 1200 cabs per day 600 shifts 



4939 shifts 



Dividing the total of 4939 shifts by 
2 shifts per day to arrive at the 
total number of cabs on the street 
simultaneously 2465 

The survey shows that approximately 38% of 
the cabs on the streets were empty. 

If all cabs were to operate efficiently on a basis 
of 1.9 shifts per cab per day there would be 4251 
cabs simultaneously on the street as compared to 
2465 at present. This would increase the ratio of 
empty cabs to loaded from 38% to approximately 
65%. 

During the hearings the opinion expressed by 
all, with exception of an isolated few was to the 
effect that the income of the drivers had decreased 
considerably within the past six months — the per- 
centages averaging from 15% to 35% so it is 
obvious when all the old cabs are replaced by new 
cabs and with more cabs on the street dne to more 
efficient operation, additional men will be required 
to man them and without any increase in revenue 
resulting from the additional cabs on the street the 
average driver's earnings will be decreased to an 
alarming extent. 

On June 22, 1946 I rendered a report to the City 
Council of the City of Chicago after a complete 
survey had been made and a public hearing had 
been held and in that report I made the following 
statement : 

"At the present time the taxicabs unlicensed by 
the citv and operating in the city are under no 
jurisdiction, having no means of identification 
other than their group organization. They bear 
no name and number such as furnished by this 
office with licenses. It is. therefore, impossible 
to trace the many complaints received as to lost 
articles, refusal of loads, overcharges and dis- 
courtesies." 

That statement is not only true today but true 
to a greater extent. 

From the information obtained and various tes- 
timonies submitted, my conclusions are as follows: 
1: 

(a) A large number of individual cab operators 
as well as drivers who engaged in business 
have been forced, by economical reasons, to 
give up the business. 

(b) Whereas, during the war and for a year 
after V-J Day, it was difficult to find cabs 
parked on cab stands, the evidence today 
indicates, with the exception of rush hours, 
that cab stands are fairly loaded with idle 
cabs. 

(c) The number of complaints filed with this 
office has increased considerably, covering 
the matter of lost baggage, refusal to go to 
destinations, overcharging, group riding and 
the like. 

(d) From the sworn statements submitted to 
this office by those who operated as one of 
the 275 with temporary licenses, it was in- 
dicated that in spite of the omission of such 
items of expense as depreciation, washing, 
storage, etc., their earnings in most cases, 
did not exceed $50.00 per week and some 
show as low as $25.00 per week. 

(e) The undisputed testimony of all drivers of 
the two major companies, corroborated by 
the sworn reports in my files, indicated a 
substantial falling off in earnings since V-J 
Day. 

(f) The taxicab business will, undoubtedly, fall 
off when people secure new cars. During the 
year of 1941 (prior to the war) there were 



September 10, 1947 



REPORTS OF COMMITTEES 



853 



585,000 cars registered in Chicago. At the 
present date there are 468,000 and I am in- 
formed by the Chicago Automobile Trade 
Association that there is an actual backlog 
in excess of 100,000 cars in the city. As 
these new cars are delivered, it will effect 
the taxicab business to a great extent. 
2: Personal injury accidents have seriously 
increased within the last year. Some of this 
increase is due to the congested traffic and 
to some extent is caused by cruising taxi- 
cabs. 

3: Taxicab business is further decreased by 
the decline in general business conditions, 
in the night club business and decrease in 
railroad and transportation business. 
4: Every indication seems to be that the 
major companies will, within a very short 
space of time, have their entire fleets, 
equipped with new taxicabs and conse- 
quently will increase the number of cabs 
and shifts per day upon the streets and 
after the new equipment is received, there 
will be much more servicing of the outlying 
communities by telephone than heretofore. 
It is apparent that taxicab operation in Chicago 
is not normal at the present time and I am con- 
vinced that no proper finding could be made as to 
just what the needs of Chicago are for taxicab 
service or what its needs will be six months hence. 
Therefore, until a normal stage of operation is 
reached and all licensees are operating efficiently, 
it will be impossible to arrive at a sound final 
opinion as to just how many taxicabs are needed 
to satisfy the needs of this community. 

I, therefore, recommend that all taxicabs licensed 
by the State, as of this date, who can qualify, be 
licensed by the city under the same conditions that 
275 licenses were authorized on February 28, 1946 
as shown on page 5167 of the Council Proceedings 
and I propose, prior to the end of this license 
period, that a new survey be made by which time 
I am convinced, a normal condition will have been 
reached and there will be sufficient facts to arrive 
at a proper conclusion as to the needs of taxicab 
service in the City of Chicago. 

This should be done with the understanding that 
no one shall be allowed to operate without first 
having obtained a license to operate a taxicab 
from the City of Chicago. 

All public stenographer transcripts together 
with exhibits presented at the public hearing are 
in the files of this office. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) Edw. J. Gorman, 
Public Vehicle License Commissioner.

Whereas, for twelve years, from 1935 to 1947 
the late Joseph Kacena served the public faithfully 
and diligently in the City Council and returned to 
private life after such service without seeking 
re-election; and 

Whereas, having been born in Chicago as the 
son of immigrant parents who emigrated to this

Council from 1935 to 1947, elected Democratic 
Presidential Elector from Illinois to the Electoral 
College for Franklin Delano Roosevelt's last term 
as President in 1944, his career was illustrative of 
the development of those qualities given oppor- 
tunity for development by our democratic system 
of government; and 

Whereas, his death causes grief and a sense of 
great loss to us, his friends, as well as to his 
widow, his sons and other members of his family; 

Now, Therefore, Be It Resolved, that the mem- 
bers of the City Council express their grief and

Endorsement of Proposed Plan for Redistricting of 
City into Wards — Placed on File. 

Alderman Lancaster presented the following com- 
munication, which was ordered Published and Placed 
on File: 

Citizens' Association of Chicago 

September 19, 1947. 

Alderman William J. Lancaster, Chairman, 

City Council Committee on Rules: 

Dear Alderman Lancaster — The Citizens' Asso- 
ciation of Chicago, by unanimous action of its Exe- 
cutive Committee, is happy to endorse the proposed 
ward redistricting which is being submitted by your 
Committee to the City Council. We have analyzed 
the plan from the standpoint of equal representa- 
tion and note the following important points in its 
favor: 

(1) By combining two wards at the center of 
lowest population and forming a new ward in the 
area of greatest density, it eliminates the most 
serious inequality, makes possible the minimum of 
disruption in present ward areas, and eases the 
problem of future redistricting. 

(2) Because reasonable equality was reached 
with comparatively few changes in present ward 
lines throughout the city, it should require a mini- 
mum of time and expense by the Board of Election 
Commissioners to effect changes in voting records. 

(3) The 1940 census totals of the new areas, 
tabulated on the attached sheet, show ward popu- 
lations well spaced around the perfect ward aver- 
age of 67,936. Seven wards have new populations 
slightly below 60,000 and nine are slightly above 
75,000; the remaining 34 wards are in the reason- 
able range of 7,800 above or below the average. 
The difference of 23,236 between the largest and 
smallest wards compares very favorably with the 
present variation of 64,065. 

For these reasons, the Citizens' Association urges 
immediate adoption of the proposed redistricting 
as the best available plan to give more equal repre- 
sentation of the people in their City Council. Fur- 
ther delay until a new census shall have been made, 
as has been suggested, would be inadvisable in view 



of the statute which makes redistricting mandatory 
after each federal census. 

The Citizens' Association warmly commends the 
Rules Committee on its skillful, equitable, and pub- 
lic-spirited handling of a difficult re-mapping as- 
signment, and recommends support of its action bv 
the City Council. , 3

Whereas, our Constitution, being the oldest form 
of government in the world today, sustains our
